LUSAKA: Africa must beware of “new colonialism” as China expands ties there and focus instead on partners able to help build productive capacity on the continent, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said. Clinton, asked in a television interview in Zambia on Saturday about China’s rising influence on the continent, said Africans should be wary of friends who only deal with elites. “We don’t want to see a new colonialism in Africa,” Clinton said in a television interview in Lusaka, the first stop on a five-day Africa tour.

The US warns African against neocolonism?
What has the world come to? It's the same moral value as the US telling Israel not to steal the lands which clearly belongs to others.

This is the peak of ineptitude, straight up. I rather see the Chinese or the Russians dealing the rise of African countries than the all-time murderers and rapists that the US government is.

Oh goodie! Another"hate America" thread. Why it's been at least an hour since the last one.

So it is your esteemed and educated opinion that America has done nothing good for the planet?

C'mon, we must have done something right?!?!

34 million Chinese citizens starved to death after the democratic China was ousted to Taiwan by the Communist China.

I thought the allies/demoocracy won the war?

Why did Japan start the sino wars and in effect start WW2?

Why did Japan get to keep conquered Chinese islands post WW2 and Communist China take over mainland China post WW2?

Democratic china gave 1 million chinese workers to work the docks in France in WW1

Allowing China to thrive on the deaths of 34 million (Canada's entire population) does not sit easy with me

Buying Chinese goods is akin to supporting Hitler

Far fetches you say....Mao studied in Germany and was heavily influenced by the Nazi party

Maoism started communist China which led to the famine deaths of 34 million

Communist China now supplies the world with goods made basically by slavery

Buying communist made goods is akin to supporting Hitler

Supporting companies/internationalist/people who buy communist goods is like burning the American Flag

Let the people of the country choose. Before anyone starts writing crap about any specific country we need to look at the history of all parties involved and their treatment of other lands.

Before anyone says anything about the US which I know will come up lets look at Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the other places that were under our country at one point or another Liberia, Cuba, Hawaii, Panama before their current status.
